Programmatically fade a color

I need to fade a color. The color is of a Sprite in AndEngine. Color values are from 0 .. 1 (not 256). So each time I subtract 0.2. This has the effect of darkening. How do I change the colors to fade?

The code below loops 5 times.
import org.andengine.entity.sprite.Sprite;
import org.andengine.util.color.Color;
...
// loop
Color color = sprite.getColor();
Color newColor = new Color(color.getRed()- 0.20f, color.getBlue()- 0.20f, color.getGreen()- 0.20f);
sprite.setColor(newColor);
// end loop

Nope. Its not color at all, but rather alpha (get/set).
